The New York Yankees have optioned infielder Ramiro Pena to Triple-A to make room on their roster for recently-acquired infielder Casey McGehee, reports Bryan Hoch of MLB.com:

The Yankees acquired McGehee from the Pittsburgh Pirates yesterday in exchange for reliever Chad Qualls. Over 92 games and 265 at-bats with the Pirates, McGehee hit at a clip of .230/.297/.377 with 22 extra-base hits and 35 RBIs. The 29-year-old owns a career OPS of .735.

Pena has only appeared in three games this season with the Yankees, collecting a hit over four at-bats. The 27-year-old has spent much of the season with New York’s Triple-A affiliate, where he’s maintained a line of .249/.302/.316.

Should the Yankees have done more to replace the injured A-Rod?
